    Very soon we will hit 1 MILLION posts.
    What an exciting milestone! To think this little website I started 7.5 years ago would be supported by such a wonderful community... I am honored and humbled to be a part of the wonderful things we have done for tortoises everywhere.
    THANK YOU ALL for making this website the great thing that it is. Thank you for being kind to each other, for being willing to lend a helping hand. Thank you for answering the same questions ("why's my tortoise's poo white?!") for every new person that finds themselves on our doorstep. Your patience and love and compassion is what binds us all together.
    Thank you to our moderators for keeping me sane and holding me accountable. Without their help, I would've surely drowned in spam reports by now :)

    To celebrate this monumental milestone, I will be offering a $100 gift card (from one of our sponsors, I haven't chosen which yet) to one randomly-selected member that posts in this thread thanking another member for something they've done for you - big or small, old or new. (Remember to use "@their_member_name" to tag them!) (One entry per member.)

    Now, ONWARD AND UPWARD -- TO THE NEXT MILLION TORTOISE POSTS!

    Thanks @Tom. Without his help, my tortoises would look like they belong in Egypt!

    Sorry, I'm not able to @ everyone I'd like to thank. Without all of YOU, this Forum wouldn't be nearly as enjoyable or addicting as it is. Thank you all!!

    And a very special thank you to @bouaboua and Irene for their working visit a few weeks ago.

    Awesome milestone indeed!!

    Thank you @Tom for sharing the humid info. Without that my leopard, Levi would have suffered tremendously.
    I have a hydrated, relatively smooth leopard thanks to your experiments.
    Aside from the forum support, you've helped me privately! You are one cool dude :cool:

    Thank you @Josh for creating TFO...the latest info and wonderful network of people are only possible because of this site. :thumbsup:

    I want to thank everyone on here because without this community many tortoises would either be dead or just surviving and not thriving.

    Thank you @Josh for creating this wonderful forum.

    As a newbie I have had many questions. Did things wrong at first. I hope not to the danger of my Tuxy. Today has been hard for me. I have to thank all of you for everything you do. But today I have to thank @Yvonne G . And congrats TFO. Great job all of you.

    I would like to thank @yvonne! She was the very first person I talked to when I joined . Gave me a warm welcome and got me addicted to this site . I would also like to thank @tortadise (kelly and his awesome mom ) . They have taken time out of their lives to invite people like me and my wife over to show us their place and let us adopt some awesome shelled friends . I would also like to thank @Tom for being the person he is . He always pushes for the wellbeing of our tortoises no matter who it offends . Haha He himself has changed the way most of us care for our tortoises . An most of all thank you @Josh for starting this site . Because without you I would've never met all these amazing people here . You deserve the award! Thank you so much from me and my shelled buds .
